Notes/Commercial Description:
We use a blend of Munich Malt and two row barley as a base and create an assertive taste by adding cluster hops. Cheers Travis McGee!

3.28/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Near clear, copper-toned body with a fizzy, though persistent, white head.

Smell: Spicy, earthy, mildly citrusy hops in the fore, fairly pale malts in the middle, and, as is Blackhorse's wont, some lightly buttery diacetyl in the back.

Taste: Pale malts with an added dose of sugared sweetness. The hops begin spicy and earthy, then rolls out some hints of lemon zest. Medium (if even) bitterness. Finishes drying, but with some final bittersweet and buttery hints.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: With diacetyl creeping into their entire lineup, well, that's just sloppy brewing. Trying my very best to look past such carelessness in one's craft, it would be an acceptable pale ale.

A: Served a nice copper color with a small head that faded slowly to lacing.

S: Mild aroma of malt sweetness and citrus with a hint of grain.

T: Mild sweet flavor with a bit of grain. Has a nice bitterness and a fairly dry finish.

F: Fairly medium body quite smooth and refreshing.

O: Nice easy drinking beer. Nothing fancy here just a nice everyday beer. Goes good with their pizza.
